The current situation in the UK regarding Coronavirus severely limits the capacity of Cadogan Hall. Because of this and the tighter restrictions for November, this performance will not be happening at Cadogan Hall. However we have worked with Rick Wakeman, the promoter Kilimanjaro Live, and our colleagues at the London Palladium to enable the performance to go ahead at The London Palladium on Saturday 24 April 2021 in a socially distanced format.

All existing ticket holders have the option of transferring their tickets to The London Palladium performance and have been contacted. If you have any questions at all please contact the Box Office on 020 7730 4500 or via our online form.


An evening of music and laughter – and grumpiness!

Rick’s back – and even grumpier than last year! Following 2019’s sell-out Christmas tour, keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman embarks on another festive foray around the UK.

Both as a member of YES and as a solo artist, Rick Wakeman is known across the world for his virtuosity, creative flair and wicked sense of humour. A true rock legend, with over 50 million albums sold in five decades, his music continues to reach new generations of fans.

Fans of his solo concerts will already know that they combine spellbinding piano music with side-splitting stories and revealing insights into his lengthy and varied career. New fans should expect an evening of superb musicianship, featuring tracks from last year’s release Christmas Portraits – Rick’s instrumental arrangements of traditional festive tunes – as well as music from YES, his own solo epics and early Bowie hits, plus fantastic arrangements of Beatles tunes, and much more, interspersed with knockabout (and sometimes bawdy!) humour.

The Even Grumpier Old Christmas Show is guaranteed to round off what has been a stressful year for everyone with an entertaining evening of glorious piano music and hilarious fun.

‘Meet & Greet’ package includes:
•  Premium top price ticket within the first 10 rows
•  A ‘Meet & Greet’ with Rick Wakeman
•  Photo opportunity

•  Rick Wakeman Christmas tote bag
(Details of the ‘Meet & Greet’ will be sent out to bookers nearer the time.)

This event is not socially-distanced

As the government considers a move away from social distancing measures, such as the two-meter rule, it is our greatest hope that this event may be staged to a full-capacity audience.

Naturally, this is entirely conditional on the country’s ability to keep the virus under control. Therefore performances that have been sold to a full-capacity audience may be postponed or cancelled should distancing measures remain in place.

However, please be assured that all ticket purchases are fully protected and in the case of a rescheduled or cancelled event, customers are entitled to exchanges, credits, or refunds.
